Discounted Cash Flow Calculation for ENXTPA:PREC using 2 Stage Free Cash Flow to Equity Model

The calculations below outline how an intrinsic value for Precia is arrived at by discounting future cash flows to their present value using the 2 stage method. We try to start with analysts estimates of free cash flow, however if these are not available we use the most recent financial results. In the 1st stage we continue to grow the free cash flow over a 10 year period, with the growth rate trending towards the perpetual growth rate used in the 2nd stage. The 2nd stage assumes the company grows at a stable rate into perpetuity.

Performance last year
We want to ensure a company is making the most of what it has available. This is done by comparing the return (profit) to a company's available funds, assets and capital.
  • Precia has not efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity less than 20%).
  • Precia used its assets more efficiently than the FR Machinery industry average last year based on Return on Assets.

Health

 How is Precia's financial health and their level of debt?

A company's financial position is much like your own financial position, it includes everything you own (assets) and owe (liabilities).

The boxes below represent the relative size of what makes up Precia's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Precia is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Precia's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Precia's finances. If any of them are yellow this indicates they may be out of proportion and red means they relate to one of the checks below.
Assets
Liabilities and shares
The 'shares' portion represents any funds contributed by the owners (shareholders) and any profits.
  • High level of physical assets or inventory.
  • Debt is covered by short term assets, assets are 5.1x debt.
Historical Debt
Nearly all companies have debt. Debt in itself isn’t bad, however if the debt is too high, or the company can’t afford to pay the interest on its debts this may have impacts in the future.

The graphic below shows equity (available funds) and debt, we ideally want to see the red area (debt) decreasing.

If there is any debt we look at the companies capability to repay it, and whether the level has increased over the past 5 years.

We Think Precia (EPA:PREC) Can Stay On Top Of Its Debt

Debt and other liabilities become risky for a business when it cannot easily fulfill those obligations, either with free cash flow or by raising capital at an attractive price. … Finally, a business needs free cash flow to pay off debt; accounting profits just don't cut it. … While Precia has net cash on its balance sheet, it's still worth taking a look at its ability to convert earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) to free cash flow, to help us understand how quickly it is building (or eroding) that cash balance.

Is Precia SA (EPA:PREC) A Smart Pick For Income Investors?

Could Precia SA (EPA:PREC) be an attractive dividend share to own for the long haul? Investors are often drawn to strong companies with the idea of reinvesting the dividends. Yet sometimes, investors buy a stock for its dividend and lose money because the share price falls by more than they earned in dividend payments. Investors might not know much about Precia's dividend prospects, even though it has been paying dividends for the last nine years and offers a 1.4% yield. A low yield is generally a turn-off, but if the prospects for earnings growth were strong, investors might be pleasantly surprised by the long-term results. The company also bought back stock equivalent to around 2.0% of market capitalisation this year. Before you buy any stock for its dividend however, you should always remember Warren Buffett's two rules: 1) Don't lose money, and 2) Remember rule #1. … Looking at the data, we can see that 22% of Precia's profits were paid out as dividends in the last 12 months. … Dividend Growth Potential The other half of the dividend investing equation is evaluating whether earnings per share (EPS) are growing. Over the long term, dividends need to grow at or above the rate of inflation, in order to maintain the recipient's purchasing power. Earnings have grown at around 6.7% a year for the past five years, which is better than seeing them shrink! A low payout ratio and strong historical earnings growth suggests Precia has been effectively reinvesting in its business. We think this generally bodes well for its dividend prospects. Conclusion Dividend investors should always want to know if a) a company's dividends are affordable, b) if there is a track record of consistent payments, and c) if the dividend is capable of growing.
